Henry D. Hess, Jr., “DRAIL” 38, died Saturday, May 26, 2018 at St. Joseph Medical Center, Andover, Ohio.
The son of Henry D. Hess, Sr. and Marguerite (Braessler), he was born on November 12, 1979 in Ashtabula, Ohio, where he enjoyed most of his life other than when he spent time with his family in West Virginia.
A Class of ’98 graduate of PVHS and the ACJVS (Certificate in Masonry), recently he earned his HVAC Certification while being employed with Scott Hill (Scorpion Mechanical) for the past several years throughout Ashtabula County.
His children and family were his life. He was an amazing father, the best “uncle”, a loving brother and son, and the most sincere and loyal soulmate one could ever ask for.
Darrel was a jack of all trades and a master at them all. He loved music, enjoying his muscle cars, and most importantly helping others. He gave his shirt off his back to anyone in need. He was a perfectionist and a wonderful teacher. He enjoyed camping and being outdoors. His survivors include his soulmate, Amber, married July 7, 2007; three sons, Aden, Landon, and Chance; his mother, Marguerite “Rita” Stroyny of Cambridge Springs, PA; his father, Henry D. Hess, Sr. (Regina) of Princeton, WV; one brother, Brad Hess of WV; four sisters, Tonya Mercer (Victor) of Geneva, Jessica Brainard of Dorset, Stephanie (Scott) Daniels and Shawndy (Tommy) Gilligan, both of WV; his in-laws, William and Lori Shine of Williamsfield; brother-in-law, Tyler Shine; sister-in-law, Maranda Shine; numerous nieces and nephews; and his faithful K-9 companion Chloe.
A Celebration of Life Gathering will be held Saturday, June 2, 2018 from 4-7PM with a time of sharing at 7PM at the WILLIAMS-DUCRO FUNERAL HOME, 1071 SR 7, Pierpont. Josh Woodard will officiate.
Contributions may be made to his wife, Amber and her sons.
